Today the Red Sox added Daniel Nava to the major league roster and optioned Clayton Mortensen to Pawtucket.
Although Clayton Mortensen was great in his 9.1 innings of work with the Red Sox, pitching to the tune of a 0.96 ERA and a 0.64 WHIP with 12 strikeouts, this is welcome news to say the least. The Red Sox outfield condition has been close to anemic for the outfielders not...
With 36 hours of anger & fury being unleashed over Josh Beckett, you would think the flamethrower would come out and pitch a dominant game to quiet the naysayers right?
Wrong and it wasn't even close.
Beckett was struggling with his control and the Indians took full advantage, giving up seven hits and allowing seven runs in just 2 1/3 innings and those in attendance...
The Red Sox have had their fair share of injuries, but losing David Ortiz for any length of time would truly leave a gaping hole in the lineup. It's unclear if Ortiz will miss any time, but he was removed from Friday's game against the Indians due to a sore left heel, which he appeared to injure while legging out an infield single in the fifth inning. Ortiz was replaced by...
Daniel Nava is seeing his first big league action since 2000. And the 29-year-old outfielder is happy to be contributing to a hopeful Red Sox turnaround. Nava helped the team on Friday night, going 1-for-3 with a run and an outfield assist that helped Clay Buchholz remain confident and solid early on. the journeyman wants to continue producing and hopes his time with the Red Sox...
Editor's note: NESN.com is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine's words. Each game day, we will select a Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. The Red Sox have won two games in a row. Better yet, they’ve won two games in a row at home, where for some reason Fenway Park green has been kryptonite to their record this season. Other...
Josh Beckett would certainly like a mulligan for Thursday's start. Unfortunately for the hard-throwing right-hander, there's no do-over for his rough outing against the Indians, during which he couldn't make it out of the third inning. Beckett allowed seven earned runs on seven hits in 2 1/3 innings while suffering the loss and once again forcing Bobby Valentine to turn...
Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz left Friday night's game against the Cleveland Indians in the seventh inning with a bruised left heel. The injury occurred while he ran through first base in the fifth inning. He is being evaluated today, according to the Boston Herald. The newspaper also reported that Ortiz received a citation for his involvement in an auto accident...
Last Monday, Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Josh Beckett threw 126 pitches in only 6.2 innings. Following the game, the Sox decided that they would skip Beckett’s next scheduled start, due to him having soreness in his lat. However, there is a report that the pain didn’t keep Beckett off the golf course, just two [...]
He'll do what he wants with his off-days
There is another controversy in Boston. Josh Beckett missed a start last week with a stiff back and shot a round of golf the very next day. Beckett was back on the mound today as the Cleveland Indians were in town, and my goodness, the fans gave it to Beckett. Fenway Park rained down “boos” as Beckett walked off the mound after only...
Josh Beckett never made it through the 3rd inning, which pretty much tells you everything you need to know about Thursday night's game against the Cleveland Indians at Fenway Park. Beckett's line was 2.1 innings, 7 runs (all earned) on 7 hits including 2 home runs, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. It was no surprise that Beckett was booed off the field when manager Bobby Valentine...
Tim Williams was first to report tonight that the Pirates have acquired corner infielder Jeff Larish from the Boston Red Sox for cash. Larish will report to AAA-Indianapolis.
Larish, 29, has a .224/.308/.380 line in 276 MLB plate appearances over parts of three seasons with Detroit and Oakland. He has four seasons of AAA experience an .834 OPS over his time there.
This move is obviously...
BOSTON -- Josh Beckett's first outing back in the Boston Red Sox's rotation was a double bogey. Embroiled in controversy over playing golf last week after being given a start off due to a back ailment, Beckett lasted just 2 1/3 innings Thursday in Boston's 8-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians. He gave up seven runs on seven hits and two walks. The Fenway Park fans booed...
After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value.
Mike Aviles: Mike didn't get the job done in the series. He did have a few hits, but couldn't get the offense sparked from the top spot.
Dustin Pedroia: Pedey has been looking good, and looked great in the first game. A couple of 1-fo-4's to...
Johnny Damon and Derek Lowe are back in town, but the Red Sox will be trying to step up and remind those two and the Indians that Fenway Park is not their home any more. As much as we may love those two former Red Sox, the current members will have plenty on the line on Thursday while trying to end a slide during which they've lost seven of their last eight games. NESN Nation...
Before Thursday night's game against the Cleveland Indians, the Boston Red Sox paid tribute to their late public address announcer Carl Beane, who passed away tragically on Wednesday in a car accident.
